What happens if I forget to square off Nifty Futures on Expiry?

It will be cash settled by the exchange and broker will release the blocked margin.

@nithin is this true? If yes then Is this apply for options too?

Yes, but it is not applicable for all stocks yet. Check this

@nithin But what happens in case of Nifty Futures?
